An in vitro preparation from the pedal ganglia of the marine bivalve, Mytilus edulis, was used to examine the modulation of transmitter release by adenosine and its analogs from invertebrate nervous tissue. The ganglia of this organism contain the monoamines dopamine (DA), serotonin (5-HT), and norepinephrine (NE), and the presynaptic release of these substances is known to be calcium-dependent. This organism also contains a DA-sensitive adenylate cyclase system which resembles that seen in… CONTINUE READING
